Lunch with Carol and Heston

Hi Everyone, hope you are all well…now that my daughter is back at school I had the chance to have lunch with my cousin Carol (picured above)…she treated me to a delicious lunch of pizza and crispy potatoes at a winery called TGallant nestled in the Mornington was a beautiful day the weather was perfect.
After lunch Carol took me to one of her favourite bookshops where we had cake and coffee.. then onto a fabulous antique shed where she helped me search for vintage props for my food styling shoots…we found some old baking tins which I can’t wait to photograph!
When we arrived back at Carol’s house she lent me some of her latest cookbooks..amongst them was Heston Blummental at Home.
Heston at Home is a book for cooks who want to know how food works, and who are excited about adopting an unconventional approach that will revolutionize the experience of cooking at home. The photography is amazing especially this one of the toasted cheese sandwich and the lemon being squeezed onto the tea smoked salmon.

All Heston Blummenthal at home photographs by Angela Moore.  Art direction and design by Graphic Thought Facility, published by Bloomsbury.

When I was saying goodbye Carol took this painting off her wall and lent it to me to hang in my home for a while…she thinks art should be shared, it’s a beautiful philosophy.

Thank you for such a wonderful day Carol and for your generosity, look forward to catching up again soon.  My next post will be a beautiful Nectarine Buttermilk Cake I want to make before all the stone fruit disappears…talk soon.
